Market vans fill up car parks

Sir,

After reading your article about not letting market traders park their vans on the Market Place on Thursdays and Saturdays I would just like to say that there are special parking places on the Pimlico car park.

The market traders say not so many people use the market now because of the car parking charges so the council have removed the charges on Saturdays in council car parks.

But if you go on the market after 9am on a Saturday you cannot get on a council car park because it is mostly full up of market traders’ vans.

So we the shoppers, who come to use the market have to go and pay on Pimlico car park.
